Did my back and shoulders after work today. For dinner tonight, I'm going a bit carb heavier than usual and have chicken with quinoa and spinach.

Hubby has recently gotten back into going on the treadmill every other day basically- he fell out of it for a while and just did push ups and sit ups.
I am needing to learn how to refocus and replan my day now that I have more things I am juggling.
Hey, that doesn't sound so bad. And I like that you realize you need to adjust. Lifestyles change over time, and successful exercise programs adjust to that.
Since you did something each day of the week, I'll be happy to not count it as any cheats unless you want me to.

I should probably get back on my protein.
Any tips for gaining muscle without having to become my own personal wolfgang puck. (don't have time to cook and cater to my diet as much b/c of law school)
Well, what are your options? When you do cook, always make multiple servings. That way you have leftovers. When you eat out, make sure you get enough protein and calories. You burn alot through your exercising (edit: I mean MMA training), which actually hurts your "gain muscle" goal a bit. To compensate, you need to make sure you are eating enough.
Not gaining weight? Eat more. If you continue exercising, and eating the right foods, you should have some luck.
Yikes, I didn't tweak my hamstring, I strained/sprained my knee. I'm going to rest it for a bit more and then do some low impact cardio later in the week.
